LIVE GameThread - Lakers vs. Nuggets: Game 2 - 3rd Quarter

You guys didn't really think the Nuggets weren't going to make a push... did you?

The temptation will be to get upset that the Nuggets got back into this game, cutting a 13-point lead to one. But you know what? This is the Western Conference Finals, the Nuggets aren't going to roll over. They're going to make a push. They made some big shots.

Yes, the Lakers relaxed on defense, and yes, the Nuggets made a push. In a way, it may just help keep the Lakers from coming out flat in this half. As Phil likes to say, the first 5 minutes will be very important.

Here we go! Let's retake control of this game.
